Democratic Republic of Congo international forward Bismack Biyombo is not happy that his country will not be part of the sixteen nations that will be on parade at the 2015 Afrobasket in Tunisia come August.

Speaking with FIBA at the 2015 NBA/FIBA Basketball Without Border in Johannesburg, South Africa the 6 feet 9 inch forward who play professional basketball in the National Basketball Association (NBA) believed DR Congo would have made some impact at the Africa championship.

According to the Toronto Raptors forward, 'I feel pained that my country will not be in Tunisia to compete among the top African teams at the Afrobasket but we have taken the disappointment in good faith.
"I will be working closely with our federation to see how Democratic Republic of Congo will become a top contender in Africa basketball.

"It is the dream of every players to see his country competing at the big stage of his continent competition and I am not exempted but I'm wishing the countries that qualified the very best in the August 19 - 30 Afrobasket.

Biyombo says the levels of basketball on the continent is fast growing and want his nation to be part of the growth.

Drafted in 2011 by the Sacramento Kings and traded to the Charlotte Bobcats before signing to play with the Toronto Raptors in the coming NBA season, Biyombo urge the DR Congo Basketball Federation to work as a team in bringing the lost glory of its basketball.

Among the player's plan for his country basketball revival is to rally all DR Congo's players especially those playing professional to join hands together in making their national a formidable force in Africa.

"Aside working with the federation I will also be liaising with all Congo players abroad in order to realize this objective.

Biyombo is among the selected African players that will took on Team World in the August 1st NBA Africa Game in South Africa.
